Capital District Jazz, Ltd. continues its Spring Jazz at the Arts Center series Wednesday, May 30th at 7:30 PM when it presents the Brian Patneaude Quartet in concert. Tenor saxophonist Patneaude, perennial winner of “Best Local Jazz Artist” in area polls, will be joined by guitarist George Muscatello, bassist Otto Gardner and drummer Danny Whelchel.
This line up, with Muscatello and Whelchel, reunites three quarters of Brian’s quartet that was in residence Sunday nights at the late Albany jazz club Justins from 2002 through 2010. Since then they have rarely played together as a quartet. In what promises to be a special night of music, the program will feature mostly Patneaude’s compositions. Brian is looking forward to revisiting some of the old favorites from Justins and also to hearing his band mate’s interpretation of his newer compositions.
